This season we're resurrecting an old feature charmingly called Reasons to Hate. As a public service to you, the Hog fan, we'll be providing a handy pre-game cheat sheet detailing why you should hate each one of the Razorbacks' opponents this fall. Some weeks will be easier than others...
1. They're 0-7. Anything less than a blowout here would be a huge embarrassment at best, and an epic disaster at worst. As Rasputin says, "mass chaos" would ensue. So, let's get that blowout.
2. The Curse of Stan Heath. Former Arkansas basketball coach Stan Heath is an Eastern Michigan alum, and although he always seemed like a perfectly nice guy (perhaps too nice?), a loss to the Eagles would mean his hex on the Hogs has extended to the football team as well. Bad juju...can't let it happen.
3.It's Homecoming and Halloween, Dammit. That ought to inspire some sort of craziness among the fans, right? Right??
Well, there you have it...this might be our weakest Reasons to Hate ever. If you have your own reasons, please let us know in the comments section.
